Veteran Cain among players waived

Posted Aug 25, 2013

Jaguars waive 12 players, including veteran LS Jeremy Cain, and place rookie CB Jeremy Harris on injured reserve.

JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars’ first round of 2013 major releases came Sunday afternoon.

And among the releases was one of the team’s most-tenured players, with the release of veteran long snapper Jeremy Cain among 13 roster moves announced as the Jaguars trimmed their roster to 75 players.

Cain, a seven-year veteran, was one of three long snappers on the Jaguars roster. Rookie Luke Ingram also was released, leaving rookie free agent Carson Tinker as the team’s long snapper.

Cain was the only veteran released Sunday, with the team also placing rookie cornerback Jeremy Harris – a seventh-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft – on injured reserve with a back injury.

The team on Sunday also waived:

Second-year offensive guard Mark Asper, first-year veteran Ken Parrish, first-year cornerback Lionel Smith and eight rookies: linebacker Maalik Bomar, linebacker Jeremiah Green, defensive end J.D. Griggs, defensive end Paul Hazel, long snapper Luke Ingram, wide receiver Jamal Miles, safety Ray Polk and offensive tackle Roderick Tomlin.

“This is never an easy day,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said in a statement. “Some tough decisions were made today. These players all came in and competed every day and we appreciate all the work they put into the building of our team.  We wish them nothing but the best in the future.”

NFL teams must trim their rosters to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT.

Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said on Saturday he expected decisions made Sunday to be difficult, and said he discussed the issue with players after a 31-24 loss to Philadelphia Saturday.

“In this business you want to keep it genuine,” Bradley said. “We have guys that were with us for a long time that we are going to have to make decisions on whether they’re going to be here or not. I talked to them about having a genuine appreciation; they’re always going to be a part of us.

“We’re going to pull for them and I told them there’s going to be some great things in the future, we may not know right now, but I told them to keep that trust going.”

Bradley said the decisions were difficult even for players who from an outsider’s perspective may have had little chance to make the roster.

“To me, it’s always a tough decision,” he said. “You say, ‘Well, it’s really not that tough on some guys,’ but it is. For what they did for us, those are always tough decisions; we’ll support them and wish them the best.”
